Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEW:

Here is a Bruckner conductor who understands where the music is going and the contextual significance of detail. Young seems at one with Bruckner's sound world, how the music breathes and how to balance weighty brass without letting them overwhelm the rest of the orchestra. What I like most about this performance is its mixture of drama and warmth, its sense of journeying through a sizeable, open landscape.
